The Pilot Vanishing Point capless retractable fountain pen is well-known for its clever design that allows you to extend or retract your nib with just one click. When the 18K gold rhodium-plated nib is retracted into the pen body a protective shutter mechanism prevents your ink from drying out. The durable Black Carbonesque metal body features rhodium accents. The clip is placed to provide maximum efficiency: when clipped to a shirt pocket the nib points up to reduce the chance of any leaks, and when writing the clip points away from your hand. Includes one ink converter, one ink cartridge, one metal cartridge cap, and comes in a Pilot gift box. Refillable with Pilot/Namiki IC50 and IC100 ink cartridges. Approximate pen weight: 1.1 oz. Approximate size: Retracted: 5.5"; Extended: 5.4"; Diameter: 0.5".
